Learning Outcomes

  • On completion of this course you will:
  • Feel confident when bringing or defending a claim on the small claims track.
  • Be familiar with what cases can and cannot be allocated to small claims track and the courses of action available in such matters.
  • Be aware of the requirement for parties to seek mediation prior to the case proceeding to court and how to avoid the court penalising your client should this course of action prove unsuccessful

What is the target audience?

  • PI practitioners


Although the small claims track is designed to be a quick, straightforward and cheap process in which legal representation is not necessarily required, the increase in the maximum value for civil matters (up to £10,000 or up to £1,000 for personal injury and housing disrepair cases), has undoubtedly impacted upon the number of clients obtaining legal advice in order to determine the strength of their case before proceeding.

This course will offer practical guidance on how to a run small track cases from inception to enforcement as cost effectively and efficiently as possible, as even relatively low cost consultation fees can provide a regular stream of income for firms. This course will be of particular interest to trainees, paralegals and legal executives who may find themselves handling increasing numbers of small track cases, as clients attempt to keep the costs down when seeking legal representation in such matters.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
